The Jimmie men continued to score at an elite pace, but again were outgunned in another shootout loss, this time to NAIA Division I Culver-Stockton, 100-91.

Jamestown 90, Doane 87

Two-time All-American Hannah Steele scored 24 points and had eight assists to lead the Jimmies’ 55-percent shooting performance.

Jordan Bridges added 13 points, Jessica Buck 11 and Morgan Mathison 10 as 11 players scored in all.

The 6-1 Jimmies made 10 3-pointers and had 19 assists. They trailed by four with 8:16 to play. Their only loss is to No. 7 Northwestern, which remains undefeated at 3-0.

The Jimmies next two games are exhibitions against NCAA Division II teams, both out of the NSIC, starting Wednesday night at Minot State. They play in Sioux Falls, S.D. against Augustana on Saturday.

Points again were easy to come by for the Jimmie men Saturday, but getting stops continues to be elusive.

Despite hanging 91 on Culver-Stockton (Mo.), ranked 18th in NAIA Division I, the Jimmies came up nine short to close out their near-weeklong trip to Albuquerque, N.M., and then Nebraska.

Six Jimmies scored in double figures with Brequan Tucker and Mark Hoge putting up matching 17-point efforts. DeVonte Smith had his second straight strong outing with 15 points and eight rebounds.

Breshion Tucker had 13 points and five assists, while Taylor Newton and Jesse Behm had 12 each as the Jimmies got 41 points off the bench.

The Jimmies never led, but made a valiant comeback after trailing by as many as 23 points in the opening half.

It doesn’t get any easier Tuesday night with an exhibition game in Aberdeen against NSIC member Northern State. They host Crossroads Bible College on Friday.

At Seward, Neb.
